Under the Sells-Scope: ChatFuel

By Lee Davenport

In the film Transformers, I love how Bumble Bee and the other Autobots come to the aid of humans in style (a yellow Camaro with racing stripes and whatnot). Well, bots are not just for the movies.

As a real estate pro, you probably understand the need to connect with potential leads instantly. But, unfortunately, instantly might mean at 2:30 a.m. when you are fast asleep. Or, when you’re in the middle of heated negotiations. Or, when you’re at a closing that just had an unexpected hiccup or delay. Or, when you’re simply trying to enjoy dinner with your loved ones. In such moments, how realistic is it to say you actually follow-up with leads in the idealized 15-minute time window purported by lead-conversion gurus and statistics, especially if those leads come from Facebook?

Well, ChatFuel is a bot service that claims to be the game-changing solution you need to start and keep the conversation going with leads from Facebook. But is ChatFuel the tool you’ve been looking for that won’t leave your leads hanging until the morning to respond? Will it ChatFuel help you respond while you are sleeping in the middle of the night?

I decided to take ChatFuel Under the Sells-Scope to see if these bots prove as helpful as the ones in the movies. Check out my review in the video below:
